MOOG Problem Solver products incorporate proven design and engineering features to ensure like new steering, ease of installation and longer life. MOOG is the preferred steering and suspension parts brand of professional technicians and NASCAR Crew Chiefs.

Product Features:
  • Problem Solver® powdered metal gusher bearing design enables grease to flow through the bearing to the stud for reduced friction and enhanced strength and stability.
  • Problem Solver® patented cover plate design allows for tighter tolerances vs traditional cover plate designs, providing a more durable and extended life part.
  • Exclusive cover plate protects against contaminants leaking into the bearing surface.
  • MOOG® engineered steel composition results in a stronger component. Full ball metal stud provides 360 degrees of smooth, consistent, rotational movement resulting in more responsive steering.
  • An enlarged ball joint receptacle in the lower control arm can cause a loose ball joint fit. MOOG® Problem Solver® design includes an oversized housing for a more secure fit.
  • Greaseable socket design allows new lubricant to flush contaminants from the assembly, reducing corrosion and wear.

    If the threaded shaft were 1/4" shorter it would make it much easier to get spindle bracket on a 4 wheel drive w/o disconnecting the drive shaft. Ford (1998 Explorer) made the clearances so tight it is nearly impossible to remove and replace the spinle.

    I purchased two Moog ball joints for my 2001 Ford F-150. The looked more heavy duity than stock so I was pleased at this point. Upon installing I had issues with the greese fitting. The first had threads too long preventing it from tightining flush with the ball joint. Then when I inspected the second I discovered that the ball joint had no threading at all. I returned both to my local store for a refund.

        Comments about Moog Ball Joint:

        I don't know about the Moog music manufacturer, but Moog auto parts are nascar cool. Moog has front end suspension parts that are better then the ford oem. Thanks to aap for the tools... The ball joint press was key to the install. The ball joint fork made it easy to remove old parts. I replaced the lower ball joints, then came back later for the upper arms. I thought I would spend $800.00 on the front end of my 2002 ford. I was able to do the job myself, saved a lot... So I got a new floor jack and stands. Next up tie rods and shocks. The guys at my aap store are car guys... They know and share great tips and info about parts and the work they have done to their cars or trucks.
        I almost forgot how much fun it is to get under the truck and get things fixed.

            I have been maintaining my personal vehicles and those of other family members for over 30 years and can hands-down endorse the quality of this product. Recently, I replaced all the OEM parts containing rubber with Moog parts in the front suspension of my 1997 F150 4x4 and wow…it's like driving a new truck!

            bought four ball joints ( 2 upper and 2 lower) 1 upper and both lower could not thread in grease fitting ( threads were messed up and would cross thread only 1 upper would work!) so returned to store.

                      Do each side or you will have alignment problems plus it will still sqeak. If one side is toasted the other side will be also. I paid only $13.00 each for both ($26.00 total) and they are a new better design with grease fittings.
